The Australian Taxi Drivers Association

TAXI DRIVER ACTION Inc

TDA Inc is a Registered Association, 1500907, formed with the primary objective of restoring the Taxi Industry to being the primary Point to Point supplier of Public Passenger Services.

To all Taxi Drivers - June 2018

The New NSW Taxi Industry

As of now, we have a totally new player in the NSW Taxi Industry, and a totally new system and approach to the way we conduct our role as the premium Public Passenger Service. TAXIS.PLUS is finally ready to roll - we have a totally new Operating System with a state-of-the-art Booking and Despatch module, a new Meter and Payment module, and a Security module that records, stores, and makes instantly available everything that happens in the taxi-cab.


For the Taxi which has made the change to our new Network, it's all on one tablet, mounted front and centre, and below the driver's line of sight to the road for safety. Cameras are included and the external camera is now a 360 degree unit that will reduce Insurance costs. Everything is recorded live and stored on the "cloud". You can easily divert calls to and from your mobile to the Tablet.




By now you should all aware that no one is on our side. Governments around Australia have legalised UBER, and Ride Sharing, and accept minimal annual fees, if at all, plus very light rules on Registration and Insurance to leave you with exclusivity to Rank and Hail Work, and with instant bookings our work and income will drop even more. We have already lost half of our work : we will lose more. How many extra hours can you safely drive ?


Already the average hourly earnings are less than $10.00 an hour.


Already you are driving 60 hours a week.


Can your family survive on $300 a week ??? $5.00 an hour ???




This is the very last chance to save your job, as a Taxi Driver, a Taxi Operator, and even as Plate Owner. The Networks will not assist, nor the Taxi Council, but only you have a choice and a way to support your family.
